MOC DR Landing
An MOC Pilot Program for Focused Practice Recognition in Cardiac CT is now available. For more information, click here.
Maintenance of Certification (MOC) is for ABR-certified diplomates.
Diplomates who hold TIME-LIMITED certificates, and those with CONTINUOUS CERTIFICATES issued in 2012 and thereafter (with no "valid-through" dates), are automatically enrolled in the MOC program when they attain initial certification and may start participating immediately.
Diplomates who hold LIFETIME CERTIFICATES must voluntarily enroll in the program to begin the MOC process. Click here for more information.
WHY PARTICIPATE IN MOC?
The ABR's Maintenance of Certification process (ABR-MOC) is designed to facilitate and document the professional development of each diplomate through its focus on the essential elements of quality care.
|MOC focuses on the essential elements of quality care.||The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the American Board of Radiology (ABR), as a Member Board, have initiated this process. ABR-MOC is a comprehensive vehicle through which all diplomates can ensure the public and the radiologic community that they are incorporating new information into their practices and delivering quality care.|
The ABR believes in the value of Maintenance of Certification. All current ABR trustees participate in MOC, as will all future trustees and volunteers.
With that in mind, the ABR highly recommends that all diplomates participate in the MOC program. Those with time-limited certificates, or continuous certificates issued in 2012 or thereafter, are automatically enrolled in the process, though they must initiate their activity. Those with non-time limited (“lifetime”) certificates should consider MOC as an investment that will instill public confidence, demonstrate their commitment to continuing education, and promote the best interests of the patient.
A summary of the six competencies and four parts of Maintenance of Certification can be found here.
To view the MOC participation schedule for diagnostic radiology, please see the MOC Participation Guidelines. The Continuous Certification Policy provides detailed guidelines used to evaluate acceptable participation.
A brochure on MOC for Diagnostic Radiology, which includes information about continuous certification, is available here.
NOTE: All diplomates should keep the ABR apprised of any change in contact information or licensure.
